This month, the award was presented to two of our employees:
Jennifer Hollander, who is a Residential Counselor at our Emery Foothills Group Home
Ciera High, who is a Residential Counselor at our Bob & Judy Charles SmartHome
Jennifer was nominated by her supervisor, who wrote:
Jenn comes to work every day with a positive attitude and lots of energy. She’s an extremely diligent worker, which is seen by her coworkers and Supervisor in several ways. For instance, Jenn always completes all the tasks on her to-do list, and will often help her coworkers with additional tasks. Jenn also makes sure to communicate important information to the next shift before she leaves for the day. In addition to this, Jenn consistently assists with communicating with outside vendors when they come to the home to work with the individuals, as well as the individual’s family and friends when they visit. Jenn also makes sure to spend quality 1-on-1 time with a specific individual, who is currently on hospice care, by reading and singing to her. Lastly, Jenn has taken the lead on planning fun outings with the individuals, such as going to the Butterfly Pavilion and the Denver Zoo. We are very fortunate to have Jennifer as part of the team at Foothills Group Home and she absolutely deserves to be recognized for all of her hard work.
Ciera was nominated by her supervisor, who wrote:
Ciera is one of the most reliable members of the Bob and Judy Charles SmartHome team. Ciera comes to work every day with a positive attitude, no matter the circumstances. She has been so helpful and calm while we deal with short-staffing issues. She is always willing to stay longer than scheduled, and do extra tasks to ensure that the individuals are getting what they need. Ciera has helped train one of our new staff members, and ensures that they feel comfortable in their new position with Imagine! Ciera is an amazing artist and finds creative ways to bring art projects into the home. She recently helped make a sympathy card for an individual to give to a friend and drew a Chihuahua-deer (a staff nickname) for an individual to give to a staff member, which is proudly displayed in the Group Home’s office. Bob & Judy Charles is lucky to have Ciera as a part of our team. Thank you for all that you do Ciera!!
If you see Ciera and/or Jenn around, please congratulate them on being our Super Heroes of the Month!
